Last year’s Tom Cruise Mission: Impossible – Fallout became the highest worldwide grossing entry. The movie earned about $791 million. It was one of the best films in the series to review. Till then the fans were eagerly waiting for the next installment to come. When the next two films are expected to hit theaters.
The film offering breathtaking stunts and set pieces, some have wondered where a sequel would go next. The Mission: Impossible franchise just received a pretty major update.
Tom Cruise has accepted to Return for more Mission movies. Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie who wrote and directed last years Mission: Impossible – Fallout have signed on for another two films, for release in the summers of 2021 and 2022. McQuarrie will again helm the seventh and eighth installments in the franchise. Work on the script will begin imminently, with the studio hoping to shoot sometime this year.
Missions: Accepted # Mission Impossible
Sources to Mission: Impossible franchise revealed that Christopher McQuarrie has signed on to write and direct the next two films in the popular film franchise.
In order to take advantage of the popularity of the series the sequels will be shot back-to-back. Cruise and McQuarrie had already confirmed their involvement, as well as the films’ 2021 and 2022 release dates, via Twitter. While these aren’t necessarily concrete release dates, they do hint at a rough window of when the two films are set to debut. “Missions: Accepted #MissionImpossible,” McQuarrie tweeted.
Although at this point, it’s unknown which other actors from the Mission: Impossible series will return. Presently Cruise will continue filming Top Gun: Maverick. The films would have come sooner to capitalise on the series’ current popularity. The studio wanted to wait until 2021 so as to not compete with fellow Cruise vehicle Top Gun:Maverick.
